Photek SL5000 Softlighter with 8mm Removable Shaft
The Softlighter provides the convenience of an umbrella with light quality commonly associated with a softbox. The design allows the fireproof* diffusion material to be brought closer to the light source, which creates a softer light source than a traditional umbrella.
So versatile a product is the SOFTLIGHTER II, that by removal of its black cover and a reversal of direction, the SOFTLIGHTER II becomes everything a softbox promises. It becomes a shoot through diffuser providing light that can be used either as a main light source or as a flattering fill.
The SOFTLIGHTER II sets up in moments. Its unique translucent cover fits directly onto the tips of the SOFTLIGHTER II. A totally fireproof material creates its own collar around the lighthead, with no time consuming fitting of mounting collars or rib setups involved.
After inserting the SOFTLIGHTER II into the flash head, the bottom portion of the shaft is removable on the 8mm SOFTLIGHTER II , allowing the unit to get as close to the subject as possible.
- The Softlighter fits over any light head with a diameter of 7 1/4" or less, and assembles in a matter of minutes.
- Its white reflective surface, free of bleaches and fluorescence, perfectly reflects the color of your light.
- Its stout black nylon cover stops all stray and ricochet, enhancing total light control.
- Its unique construction consisting of ten panels instead of the usual eight gives more reflective surface and a more perfect circle of light, so flattering when seen as catch lights in the eyes.
